The University of Denver
Located where the Great Plains meet the Rocky Mountains, the University of Denver embodies the spirit of exploration and discovery that defines our region and our history. DU is a private institution built on exploration through research and collaboration among educators, students, and local and global communities. With nationally recognized academic programs, a history of widespread influence, a forward-looking vision for a 21st-century education, and a deep commitment to promoting inclusion, we open a world of opportunity to students and empower them to make a difference around the world. Through learning, scholarship, and practice, students gain the experience, knowledge, and courage they need to tackle big challenges in the real world and guide diverse communities and organizations.
Colorado has over 30 federally funded science research centers, including National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA); National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL); U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), and National Center of Atmospheric Research (NCAR). We are a consortium member of the Rocky Mountain Research Data Center (RMRDC), allowing access to nonpublic federal data for research in the spatial, environmental, and health sciences, as well as in economics and demography. The region also boasts a strong tech industry, including several geospatial companies such as ESRI and Maxar. Our department maintains working relationships with these local industries, providing faculty with research collaborations and many student internship opportunities.
The University of Denver recognizes that its success in being a great university dedicated to the public good depends greatly on how well it engages, supports, and champions the values of diversity, equity, inclusion and justice. As part of our intentionality in recruiting and retaining faculty from a wide variety of historically excluded intersecting identities, including those from communities of color, with diverse gender and sexual identities, first-generation college graduates, or with disabilities, new faculty will have the opportunity to choose to participate in a pilot University-wide initiative. This initiative will connect new colleagues in a cohort, building community across units with supportive programming led by the Office of the Vice Provost of Faculty Affairs in collaboration with the Division of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion and each faculty participant's academic unit.
